"The Extraordinary Gift of an Ordinary Cat" really shouldn't be anywhere near the title of this book as Oscar is simply a device used by Dr. Dosa for contemplating end-of-life care, as the publishers summary states. Mostly, this is a book about dementia. If you judge the book without Oscar, then it's actually pretty good with really touching stories of how we age, what our minds/brains/lives become and how the lives of the people who love us are affected.
There are a few nice bits that show how well the elderly or those suffering from forms of dementia respond to animals. I know I would.
Still, kinda tricky and manipulative to use Oscar as the draw...

This book was more than just a good cat story. It had a full range of characters and emotions in the setting of a nursing home. It will make you laugh, cry, wonder, and best of all just enjoy the story. This is a definite 5ive.
